How to Measure

picture of blinds on windows    These measuring instructions apply to all types of window coverings...
  • For accurate measurements always use a metal tape measure
  • Take measurements in millimetres
  • Choose whether or not you want your blind to fit inside the recess of your window or hang outside the recess overlapping the window
  • Always specify the width first, followed by the drop
Window Measurement image    To hang blinds inside the window recess...
  • Measure the width of the window recess in the three horizontal locations illustrated
  • Measure the drop by taking the measurement from the top of the recess to the window sill in the three vertical locations illustrated
  • Use the smallest measurement as your final dimensions
  • Deduct 1cm (10mm) from the smallest measurement to ensure doesn't fit too tightly within the recess

  • Measure the exact area you would like the blind to cover (as shown)
  • To minimise light leakage we recommend that the blind area exceeds the window recess by at least 60mm all around
